Let the holidays unravel with Ugly Sweater Party: Parts 1 and 2, a musical experience exploring two different genres over consecutive nights. The Ugly Sweater fun begins with indie electronic tunes featuring Ethan Lipscomb, a classically trained pianist who combines samples with aggressive lyrics to create his own style of dance-rock. Duo Playdate also brings its spacey tunes into the mix, while DJ Thomas Dean spins between sets. Night two moves on to hip-hop, where 18-plus patrons can define their style with music from DJs Sir RJ, Double U and Flatline Lay.

Thursday December 21 & Friday December 22. $5-10, times vary. The Ante Room. 219 Water St. 284-8561.
